Energy company positioning crews and equipment in advance of possible heavy, wet snow and other hazardous weather

MANCHESTER, N.H. (December 15, 2022) – As the first significant winter storm of the season approaches New Hampshire with the potential for high amounts of heavy, wet snow and other hazardous weather, Eversource is preparing for whatever the storm may bring and encouraging customers to do the same. Because the weather has the potential to bring down trees or tree limbs onto electric lines and equipment causing power outages, the energy company is strategically prepositioning crews and equipment across the state so that they’re ready to respond quickly and safely to any storm-related outages. 


"As with any potential hazardous weather approaching our state, we’ve been following multiple forecasts and models this week – keeping a particularly close eye on the potential snow-rain line because of the damage that heavy, wet snow can cause to trees and the electric system,” said Eversource President of New Hampshire Operations Doug Foley. “We’re securing additional contract crews and will have line, tree and service workers geared up and ready to respond as quickly as safely possible to any outages across the state. We encourage our customers to prepare ahead of time by stocking a storm kit and charging all devices, and also remind our customers that restorations may take longer as we ensure the safety of our employees who will be responding in challenging road conditions.” 

Eversource reminds customers to always stay clear of downed wires and to report them immediately to 9-1-1. Be sure to report any outage online at, or by calling 800-662-7764. Customers who signed up for the company’s two-way texting feature can send a text to report an outage and receive outage updates as they happen.

Customers are encouraged to prepare for the storm by assembling or restocking a storm kit which should include essentials like flashlights, batteries, water, non-perishable foods, pet food and essentials and any needed medications. In addition, make sure cell phones and devices are full charged, create an emergency plan with family members and check on elderly neighbors and friends.
